Kartika is a member of the SWITCH-Asia Network Facility team. This is an EU Commission-funded project promoting Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in Asia. Having joined the CSCP in May 2012, Kartika worked on numerous projects including the EC-funded SCP demonstration projects in Asia, two annual SWITCH-Asia networking meetings, and several publications such as the annual SWITCH-Asia project fact-sheet and the supply chain management study (2013).

Before joining the Network Facility she was a journalist at Kompas Gramedia group, the largest and most reputable media group in Indonesia, in Jakarta and Bandung (West Java) for five years. Towards the end of this period she was a member of the editing team.

Having been active in many grassroot social organisations for years and with a strong interest in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Kartika has developed a well received proposal for a development project of Indonesian communities. For this proposal she was awarded a DAAD scholarship in 2008 to pursue her MBA in International Management at the Applied University NĂ¼rtingen-Geislingen, Germany. Her master thesis explored how multi-national and locally based companies in Indonesia may strategically manage and integrate CSR objectives into their core businesses.

In addition, Kartika holds a bachelor degree in biology majoring ecology and eco-microbiology. In her studies she engaged in the topics of measuring the productivity of a fresh water body and the identification of potential heavy metal resistant bacteria to combat the severe pollution affecting mangrove ecosystem in North Jakarta. Combining her in-depth knowledge of the mechanisms of ecosystems with her business skills, she wants to further contribute to spreading sustainable consumption and production especially in Asia.

Kartika is an Indonesian national.
